The FX850s definitely hit above their price range IMO. So does the Flat 4 Sui. But they are no 1Plus2. Different leagues IMO. I owned both. Going from the 1Plus2 to the FX850s makes the FX850 sound muddy and congested.

So I guess I won't be joining the woody club for a while:(  as I don't have the time to re-order now.

Well, the seller contacted me this morning and apologized and is now resending the FX-850. They even reimbursed the shipping cost so I am happy. I also removed their negative feedback since they wanted to rectify the situation and will give them positive feedback once they get here:). Hopefully:)

Well whoever picked up those free headphones must be happy. Unless the tracking number was wrong to begin with.

Yes, somebody is probably happy, unless they felt guilty and returned them to the seller.  It did kind of sound like when the seller contacted me that they did ship them to the wrong address.  I don't think it was a tracking no. issue anymore because if it were the seller wouldn't have had to re-ship them today.

Are the 1Plus2 as enjoyable and versatile with different music styles?

Seems like there's always a couple of pairs for sale in the classified section. I've often wondered why people would sell them... maybe to help funding the latest TOTL CIEM...

I think they are great all-arounders. Maybe those individuals put them on sale for the latest Tralucent product instead wink.gif.

Ahhh! makes sense, the latest of the latest, the top of the top... :rolleyes:

I just bought a pair of these from amazon.com (not .jp) for $100 + ~$20 shipping. Definitely getting scammed.. Lets see how good amazon's A-Z guarantee really is LOL

Lol. Probably. Or else the seller meant to put his listing under a lower JVC model. Well good luck, I think Amazons a-z is pretty good for the buyer from what I have read.

Lol... Yea I've been checking everyday for a lower price and this came up right when I refreshed today, and today seems to be a lucky day honestly, so I figured why not give it a shot LOL. definitely a scam though I think.. haha.. I'll report back in a week :D

 

--seller has a whole bunch of crap selling for $100 (even DVD's..) -_-; definitely a scam.. but I'm going to keep my fingers crossed LOL.

Got mine today.

 

Sound is spacious, very good. What will change with burn in? Additionally, I can't get a good seal with these.. unless they're meant to be shallow inserted.

I find they sound great with shallow insertion, as long as I use the largest tips.

 

The bass tends to change the most with break-in, becoming tighter and more in balance with the rest of the frequencies.
